V signed a contract with DJK Custom Homes Inc (Plainfield and Naperville Illinois) with the OWNER himself Dan Kittilsen. This man is a FRAUD. V wish v did our research BEFORE being ripped off by this man. I have since spoken to over a sozen of his homeowners and they ALL HAVE THE SAME STORY. Dan Kittilsen is a great salesman, and he told us everything v wanted to hear. Only when he put the contract together he leaves many of the items out, only to say later on that "it wasnt included". He ripped my wife and I off by more than $100,000!!!
He charged us to "INSTALL THE APPLIANCES", which i later found out he did not do to others. He rips each client off in whatever way he can. HE IS A FRAUD. He charged us to "haul dirt off the property" and told us it was an amount. We questioned the amount and he then handed is an INVOICE from his contractor. Unfortunately we spoke to his contractor and found out that DAN KITTILSEN himself MADE THAT INVOICE UP. The real invoice was thousands lower. I have contacted legal respresentation and am considering pursuing this. HE IS A FRAUD AND COMMITS IT WITH HIS HOMEOWNERS.
After speaking to many homeowners I found that he does lie about 90% of the time and others have also received FRAUDULENT invoices.
V found out the hard way by building with DJK Custom Homes. DO NOT BUILD WITH THIS MAN. His staff is rude and inexperienced and he doesnt warranty his work. Other homeowners want to file legal action against him, however it is SUCH A DRAINING PROCESS to work with him that most people just want him to go away.
HE IS A GREAT SALESMAN.. IF you are considering to built with him, then ask him for the last 20 homes he built for references. I am within those last 20, so you should speak with me also. He will NEVER give you his last 20 homeowners because over a dozen i spoke with hate him.
I am saddened that v were taken advantage of, especialy after talking to other homeowners and real estate agents in the area and finding out that he has been doing this for years.
V spoke with many of his contractors also and over 50% of them either were short paid or were not paid at all. It was the worst experience I have made in my life and I dont wish this on anybody else.
Build with someone else. DAN KITTILSEN IS A *** ARTIST, BEWARE!!
